The incident progressed, and police said the boyfriend shot the 55-year-old old " to defend himself and his girlfriend."

Officials said the 55-year-old man died from multiple gunshot wounds.

"We've never had any issues in this neighborhood," said Doug Andersen, neighbor. "To see somebody get shot, to hear somebody get shot -- it's terrible, especially so close. It's very unusual. I don't know what to think about it."
